Affordable and standard accomodation

Great location (within city centre, easy transfer from airport)
I needed a place to sleep for one night only - it provided what I needed. The hostel staff were very helpful and enthusiastic. I haven't tried the food there so I don't know how good it is. There are lovely cafes nearby. Great location.

location, bar and surrounds
Stayed a single night while in transit. Nice enough but a bit dirty. But the location more than made up for it and the staff were very friendly.

Typically expensive for Darwin

Location, air conditioning, social aspect
Over priced single room but Darwin is expensive. Bed was very uncomfortable. Bathrooms were not clean. Pool area was good. Air conditioning made room nice and cool.

Weekend in darwin

Fairly good location, rooftop pool bar, good security
It was tidy, handy, safe. We had everything we needed in a private 4/bed ensuite room for a good weekend away. Good location to amenities and cool pool bar on the rooftop. Security present which was good as streets gets a bit rowdy..but rooms blocked out a bit of noise. Towels, soap, sheets and blankets provided. Would easily go again to that same place.

Quick overnight stay.

Location, location, location
Arrived around 1.30am and left around 8.30am, so was just a place to sleep for us. Did the job, can't comment on the facilities as didn't use them.

nothing particular

reasonable price for Darwin but still overpriced
Sometimes some rooms can be very noisy during the night

Good Location , Not clean Kitchen and Creepy Room

Location, Party Atmosphere, Pool
The location of the Hostel was great as its in the party street and the coles and woolies are walkable distance. The Party Pool and Pub was nice to meet freinds. The Kitchen was pretty unclean and the washroom was just okay.. Rooms with Bunk Beds are not attractive but aircondition was good. Having a neutral feeling and its not worth for the money as the Darwin is quite expensive
